In changing economic conditions, ports and cities are working to transform their facilities and urban fabric to succeed in the global marketplace. This book builds on the strengths of a global network of researchers and professionals – and publication coincides with the 14th World Conference Cities and Ports in 2015. Taking a broad approach, the content is focused on the city-port dilemma – addressing many of the key issues that corporations, institutions and regulators face as they strive to understand the key factors that contribute to the functional dynamics of port cities. The book is available as a free download. Chapter Author: Franc J. Pigna, CRE.
